GeForce Experience settings

PC Gaming can be a uniquely rewarding experience, especially when games are tuned and optimized to properly take advantage of a PC’s specific hardware configuration. The usefulness of GeForce Experience 3.0's one-click optimization cannot be understated if you're new to PC gaming and aren't quite sure what all of those cryptic game controls and graphics settings mean. There is no denying that PC gaming can be complex and confusing for beginners. But GeForce Experience 3.0 takes much of the tedium out of managing and selecting graphic settings. Highlight your game, click "Optimize", and in a flash your settings are all tuned specifically for your particular hardware configuration.

Moreover, the new overlay is one of the cooler features of the Share section, that was not present in the old Shadowplay. With the tap of a hotkey you can bring up the overlay to access the Share features, including video or screen capture, and streaming / broadcasting. It's available from anywhere -- while at the desktop or in-game. It's super handy and works well.

GeForce Experience games

If you've got a compatible GeForce -- and unless your graphics card is really old, you probably do -- check out NVIDIA's GeForce Experience 3.0 utility; it was probably installed with a recent driver update.  If you opted out of the installation for whatever reason, go ahead and grab a copy from NVIDIA's site and give it a shot. GeForce Experience 3.0 is extremely handy for users looking to wring the most from their systems or share their gaming exploits with a larger community.
